Empower Your Child’s Learning Potential With A Dual Language Primary Program.

Our high-quality bilingual curriculum actively fosters critical thinking. Moreover, it equips children with the essential skills they need for academic success. Therefore, join us and grant your child the invaluable gift of bilingualism.

Discover the Benefits of Bilingual Primary Education:

Educational Advantage

Bilingual instruction has proven to be the best learning approach. At Tessa International School (recognized as one of the top schools in the state), we firstly challenge our students in English and French, Mandarin, or Spanish to help them reach their full potential as learners and as individuals.

Inquiry-Based Learning  

Our Dual-Language programs promote inquiry, exploration, and investigation while actively providing children with the skills to meet the highest academic standards. We achieve this through a unique combination of the official French curriculum and the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Program (IB).

Social-Emotional development

We pride ourselves on creating numerous academic and social-emotional growth opportunities for our students through dynamic and goal-oriented programs. Thus, we provide the best education available to prepare your child for tomorrow while helping them enjoy today.
